Torii Hunter Rumors: Free Agent Deciding Between Tigers, Rangers

Free agent outfielder Torii Hunter is reportedly nearing a decision on where he’ll play next season, something that could be announced in the next two weeks, and it appears to have come down to two teams, the Detroit Tigers and Texas Rangers, reports Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.

Hunter visited with the Tigers yesterday and it’s been reported that he wants to sign with them. However, while Detroit may be the favorite, Morosi indicates that there’s still time for Texas to swoop in and make a push for the veteran slugger.

Hunter’s desire has been clear all along; sign with a team he feels gives him a legitimate opportunity to win a World Series, something he’s yet to do during his otherwise impressive career.

Both the Tigers and Rangers would appear solid choices with this goal in mind. Both teams are seeking outfielders this winter, but the Rangers were initially believed to hold an advantage considering Hunter’s home is in Texas.
